We have a 15 year old Trane gas/electric packaged system that needs to be replaced (heat went out and it isn't worth fixing). Since I need to make a quick decision, I was looking for advice.
Should we just get another gas/electric system? Or a heat pump system? or a dual fuel system? We don't know how long we will be in this house, so we want to choose something middle of the road. I was thinking that the duel system might not be worth it, especially with our climate? And I am worried about the heat pump system because it would be running practically all year round. What do you think? Our current utility costs are 11 cents/kwh and $1.41/therm, including service charges. Also, I know Trane is a good brand. What other brands should I look into?
